Mint Chocolate Buttercream Frosting or Chocolate Frosting (Swiss Meringue)

Gluten Free Cupcakes with Chocolate Mint Buttercream Frosting

Last Updated on

Often, chocolate buttercream just doesn’t taste chocolatey enough. This Swiss meringue buttercream contains the perfect balance of chocolate and slightly minty flavor. So many times recipes turn out too minty, which drowns out the chocolate flavor. Not here! Just imagine a chocolate milkshake with a little peppermint. That’s exactly what this frosting tastes like. I’ve never been a mint fan, but this one I can eat straight from the mixing bowl. It’s that good!

I kept craving Ding Dongs. Remember those? They are a small disk-shaped chocolate cake, almost like a cupcake but not as high. They are filled with marshmallow fluff and covered in chocolate? It hit me! Why not use lots of marshmallow fluff? Since my marshmallow fluff basically melts in your mouth, you need much more versus the original Ding Dongs. Voila! This is what I ended up with. Deliciousness!! Decorated like sundaes, they make nice gifts as well. Continue reading “Gluten Free Chocolate Marshmallow Sundae Cupcakes”
